. when you look at ohio, soon after, in the weeks after sandy hook, you had guns laws weakened a little bit in ohio where you're now allowed to bring a gun into the state house garage. so it really say state-by-state thing. again, like you said, because of the borders, it's a hard thing to facilitate. but when you talk about enforcing existing laws, things like that, that's one of the things you hear from maim pro-gun people. we should enforce what's on the books now, rather than make new laws. >> same arguments we hear on the immigration side, of course. jackie, dana, this is not the last we'll be talking about this. thank you both. >> thank you. >>> we have a developing story we're following out of new york city. police now say 30 to 50 people have been injured in a ferry crash at the south street seaport. happened just before 9:00 this morning. a spokesman for the ferry line says the boat hit a loading barge and it left a gash in its bow. the ferry had about 3200 commuters on board. the injure eye ares are minor. although the latest from the fire department, they've had a lot of peop

. are they being enforced? no. what about criminals? criminals and crazy people. look at what happened in sandy hook. those guns were bought by mrs. lanza legally. they were stolen. how do you ever stop that? that's one of the other reasons the n.r.a. suggests once again we tpwhaoed to have security in the -- we need to have security in the schools. >> last night on sean hannity show there was a couple of gun people. one was in the meeting. the second may not have been in the meeting. had very interesting take-aways from the meeting. take a listen. >> essentially the meeting was unproductive. i think most of us had very low expectations going into it, and basically our presumptions were met. i think that he ran the meeting the way he saw fit. we had the opportunity to speak, and i think there were a lot of things that we agreed on. but at the end, he chose instead to focus on our differences. >> when we deal with this issue, if we focus on the gun, we miss the opportunity in this country to zero this on the real problem, which is always in whose hands are the guns. when we ask and craft the que

which was allowed to go away, you couldn't have had the clips that that young man took into the sandy hook school. it would not have been possible. that's a common-sense example. close all loopholes. every gun purchase has to have the same rigor attached to it regardless of where it occurs in our country. those are two things that would make a gigantic difference in the amount of violence that's taking place in our urban environments and yes, under these circumstances where somebody goes in and shoots up a movie theater or shoots up a school. let's take the steps that make the most sense today. i had a great conversation yesterday with vice president biden. and i know he is preparing his recommendations to the president. and i don't want to get into the details of the discussion, but he's got this down pretty well. he understands what we need to do to make it less likely that these things are going to happen in our cities and towns and these mass murders could be limited at least going into the future if some common-sense things are taken. the magazine thing is very big. >> wes. >> an
